The opposite of Central Market, I found a local food court ! It's outside just cover by bamboo blinds , and a little dark , very easy to miss it . Many of the customers are local people , and the price also very local , that's a good choice to get a meal hear .
Such a big cup of mushroom soup just spent Rs.40, and we can see many mushroom in it .
Besides mushroom soup , there also have many other local food that I don't know their name , but these food I didn't see in other city of Sri Lanka , so if you come to Kandy , don't miss it ,their slogan is "True Sri Lanka Taste"!
